"I will not comment on it as I have not seen the judgement," he said when asked to comment on the conviction of Jayalalitha.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was today convicted and sentenced to four years jail in an 18-year-old corruption case in a judgement.
The 66-year-old AIADMK supremo has also been slapped with a fine of Rs 100 crore, highest imposed on any politician, by a special judge John Michael D'Cunha who heard the case of Rs 66.65 crore disproportionate assets acquired during her first term as Chief Minister between 1991 and 1996.
The verdict unseated her from the post, disqualified her immediately as an MLA and can impact the Assembly elections due in 18 months.
Since she has been sentenced to a term of more than three years, the Chief Minister has been taken to jail and she can apply for bail only from Karnataka High Court.
